Looking at the current situation in South Africa, downgrading on credit ratings, the wildcat strikes, the economy weakening, threads of investors taking their money away, firing of 12 00 mine workers, crime, murder . . . . The list goes on and on and on.
All of this points to one thing. The ANC leadership in the country is not leading, but became followers of the same people that voted them into power. This is not good, and as everyone who keeps themselves updated with the news events will know, predict a very bleak future for all South African citizens.
Now I know that the term “FORCE MAJEURE” is not really appropriate, but it sure sounds good looking at it in this way. Force Majeure is a common clause in contracts that essentially frees both parties from liability or obligation when an extraordinary event or circumstance beyond the control of the parties, such as a war, strike, riot, crime etc. prevents one or both parties from fulfilling their obligations under the contract.
Wouldn’t it be nice if the ruling party could admit to the on-going failure and declare FORCE MAJEURE? Like I said, I know it is not the applicable term to use, but sure is so very close to the truth. The first step to fixing a problem is always admitting that the problem exists.
The thing that worries me however is that not one of the people of the ANC seems to notice that every single person, even them as well, will suffer if the order is not restored very soon, if it is not too late already! What will be the price of waking them up to the reality? They are not only busy destroying the economy by not being in charge, they destroy the future of South Africa in total.
Maybe someone can convince them to just look at the term FORCE MAJEURE?
